Mattycollector June Early Access Starts, SDCC Voucher Sale Ends 6/11

All Access starts on 6/15

Matycollector June sale - Multi-Bot, Sssqueeze, Man-at-Arms

Thursday morning we’ll see the start of Mattycollector’s June sale with Early Access, and then Thursday night they’ll close up their SDCC voucher sale.

The June sale is all Masters of the Universe Classics. The two primary Club Eternia releases are Sssqueeze (the monthly for June) and Multi-Bot (a quarterly deluxe figure). Both won’t be available during Early Access, because I suppose Mattel continues to think it doesn’t make sense to give your best customers (the subscribers) the chance to buy more figures. They do have Snake Face (April 2013) and Tung Lashor (November 2014) up again. And, because these are probably selling poorly, the Giant Man-At-Arms will be available in Early Access too. Early Access for June starts at 8AM PT on 6/11. All Access is at 9AM PT on 6/15.

The mystery items that were not available at the start of the SDCC voucher sale were revealed to be Halo exclusives from Mega Blocks (a micro figure pack) and BOOMco (foam dart guns that we can’t say are from Nerf). Three items have sold out so far – two of the three Ever After / Monster High dolls, and the Hot Wheels Marvel Secret War 3-pack. Everything else is still up for grabs. Happy shopping!

SDCC 2015: Mattycollector Exclusives Pre-Order Early Access Starts Today

Mattycollector SDCC 2015 voucher pre-order

If you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con and are interested in the Mattycollector exclusives, Early Access for Mattel’s SDCC exclusives will open to Club Eternia subscribers at 8AM PST this morning. You’ll be able to pre-order exclusives from Masters of the Universe Classics, Ghostbusters, Monster / Ever After High, and more. You’ll get a voucher which you take to the show and exchange for your exclusives at the Torrey Pines room at the Marriot San Diego Hotel and Marina, which is next door to the Convention Center.

While I’m not a fan of having to leave the floor to pick up more stuff to lug back, it’s generally preferable to taking your chances at the Matty booth on the floor – the lines can get long, and the more popular items do sell out. In the past, that’s been the Monster High stuff, but you can never really be sure what will be hot. I’m thinking the Hover Robots.

I’m happy to be heading back to SDCC this year, but Mattel’s exclusives offer some melancholy – this will be the first year since I’ve been going that Mattel hasn’t had a 6-inch scaled DC exclusive in collaboration with the Four Horsemen. I’m still holding onto the torch that Mattel will find a way to bring back DC Universe Classics. I know, I know.

Two-Bad Makes Mattycollector May Early Access a Can’t-Miss

Masters of the Universe Classics Rio Blast and DC Universe Classics Aquaman and Robin also available

Mattycollector May Sale

Blast Attak, this month’s Club Eternia figure, may be considered a dud by many Masters of the Universe Classics fans, but Early Access this month is sure to be a madhouse – that’s because Mattycollector is making Two-Bad available. As some of you may recall, during the subscription drive for the 2014 Club Eternia, Mattel announced that Two-Bad would have no day of sales inventory, leading to much angst from the fan base and presumably to more subscriptions.

What remains to be sold during is likely the customer service stock for the figure – so be prepared for a massive rush followed by a quick sell-out. Adding to the mayhem are two of the final DC Universe Classics figures – Aquaman with his hook hand and the Damian Wayne Robin, both with their own draw. Rio Blast rounds out Early Access.

Early Access has Two-Bad, Rio Blast, Aquaman and Robin, and opens tomorrow at 8AM PST. All Access adds Blast Attak, and will open up at 9AM on Friday.

Mattycollector April Sale is all Masters of the Universe Classics

First shot at exclusive Hover Robots during Early Access

Mattycollector April sale - Hover Robots, Angella, Eldor, and Glimmer

Masters of the Universe Classics is the sole focus for Mattycollector’s April sale, with Princess of Power’s Angella available for day of sales beyond those set aside for Club Eternia subscribers. She-Ravers also get another crack at Glimmer (Club Eternia, April 2014), while Eldor (Club Eternia, October 2014) is back to please the Preternia / Powers of Grayskull fans.

But Club Eternia subscribers get a rare opportunity in Early Access, when the “travelling convention” exclusive Hover Robots 3-pack will be available online for the first time. Judging from previous sales of these exclusives, like Strobo and Goat Man, expect a very quick sell-out at the start. If you miss out, you’ll get more chances throughout the rest of the year.

April’s Early Access starts at 8AM PST tomorrow, and All Access starts at 9AM on Wednesday. Good luck!

Soapbox Sunday: What’s Next for Club 200X?

What's Next for Club 200X?

Is it too soon to say that Club 200X, and by extension, Masters of the Universe Classics, is dead?

We asked last week if Club 200X has the power. According to Skeletor’s Love Child, it does not. In the latest report on the subscription, SLC stated that they had just hit the halfway mark to the minimums needed to make all six figures they announced for the line. With just over a week to go, it’s not looking good.
